Welcome back to Episode #6 of The Daily Interaction podcast. Today’s episode is around a type of interaction that raises the heart-rate and makes us break into a sweat in not such a good way and that is the discomfort and anxiety around asking for what you want.
Is it easy? Is it fun? Is it dreadful? Do you even do it and do it well?
This can apply to things you want in your relationships, your encounters with strangers or your conversations with your boss and peers. I chose two specific and useful examples to share with you after giving you a nice warm-up! Ready?

Your Weekly Friday Show Notes:
1. I share my beliefs on why we struggle so much with asking for what we want in life? Why is it so hard to work up the courage to ask for what we want?
2. First example: Asking for a raise in a corporate environment. Here, I go into extreme detail and tell you my step-by-step top notch secrets on how to effectively ask for a raise, how to have the difficult conversations, why you matter to the company more than you think, how you should see yourself, and most of all, how to build up the self-confidence to go through this process.
3. Second example: Negotiating with an artist and how to ask the right questions during the interaction in order to get the price that you want to pay. I tell you what matters most to an artist, what to never do in a negotiation with an artist, and how to make the artist feel during this process. Plus, I share my story from a killer negotiation with a sweet old man and his gorgeous wood work in New Zealand.
Enjoy and muster the courage to ask for – and therefore, receive – what you want in life.
